dragons love tacos costume

Popping in to post our Halloween costumes for 2016. A diy version of our favorite book, Dragons Love Tacos. The infant taco costume is a purchased pattern from Alphabet Circus. Everything else I just made up myself. 

Also, taking photos of your kiddos is THE HARDEST THING. I sure do love these two cuties!

first halloween ::: mini rooster

Just added one more urban chicky to our flock. The most adorable poultry that ever was.

I adore all things chicken, so naturally when given the opportunity for a baby Halloween costume I went for the mini rooster. It's also fitting since he usually starts crowing & squawking between 5-5:30am.

He is thrilled, can't you tell?

I converted our Tula carrier for babywearing in Halloween style. A farmer and his chicken. Agh! They are THE CUTEST. Oh, how I love them so.

Enjoy your costume festivities this week!

Hat was purchased from Shop CCC, the striped leggings from Little Foot Boutique, and the "feathers" I bought from the fabric store.

blood vile ::: halloween invitation

Here's the follow-up invitation that accompanied the Halloween Save-the-Date. These little 3" boxes were mailed to potential party guests.

I still love them so much! Fun packaging is the best. And don't forget you can download your own version of this invitation! Have a great weekend, friends!

halloween invite {free download}

So last year I hosted a small Halloween bash. It's one of my husbands' favorite holidays, and I love an excuse for decorations & food. Like many (nay—nearly all) projects, I hardly had time to pull it off let alone document with photos. 

But now I get to show off the fun invitations that were sent out!

The photos are of a save-the-date (more elaborate invite coming soon!), but the printable is for a fill-in-the-blank halloween party invitation. The red drip/splash isn't part of the design, it's actually a drop of food coloring. Each invite was unique with its own runs and splotches. How haunting!

Above is the link to download your own invitations. Be sure to add the splash of blood!

Happy Halloween!

Good thing no one is reading this because I its been a long while since the last post.
But finally the ghoulish promise is delivered. Most idea credits must be given to Martha Stewart, young and old, as I looked through years of her Oct magazine while planning for the 2008 Halloween party. Here are my favorite simple tips that add spooktacular accents to your scare fest:

ABOVE: Use a small red candle to drip red wax over a tall taper candle.

ABOVE: Put a few drops of red food coloring in water, and floating candles and you have a bloody glow!

ABOVE: Just glue plastic spiders to toothpicks and insert into any food.

ABOVE: I found some plastic flys with the spiders, and simply set them on food plates.

Wishing you a wonderful evening of creepy crawlies!

R.I.P

The chilly weather has inspired me to decorate the lawn with adornments. While this flamingo wanders the yard in search of his soul, I'm working on a post with tips for a Halloween party. Coming soon!
